Whether you can be successful or not depends on difference in your motivation in the beginning and few days later.

It seems that you feel less motivated when your weight doesn’t change as much. You may wonder why you can’t maintain that motivation.

So here are 9 ways to keep motivation in hard diet.



9 ways to keep diet motivation in severe diet

 

-First, look for a beautiful person as an aim


Find someone beautiful and has good body shape around you (beautiful neighbor, for example). Always be conscious and strongly wish to be like that person.

If that person lives close to you, you always see him/her even when you failed with diet or when you are depressed. You can remember the feeling that you need to make effort to be like him/her.

You can’t compromise and be successful in diet at the same time, so you should make an environment to thrust upon yourself a little.

 

-Buy clothes 2 sizes smaller


Just saying 2 sizes smaller is not realistic. Dare to pay some money and buy beautiful set of clothes 2 sizes smaller.

It requires a lot of courage, but you will be motivated to wear it once you bought it. Keeping them at where you see often will make you recall the feeling of the beginning.

 

-Have rivals


Tell that you are on a diet to as many people as possible. It will be a pressure for you, and people will talk to you about diet often, so it will have a biggest effect to keep you motivated.

Also, other people might start diet as well, so have them as your rivals.

You will think about them when you are about to give up, so they will be a good control of your feeling.

 

-Measure your size on certain day and time


It is better to measure everyday, but you are maybe too busy or it is impossible to measure at the same time everyday. If so, decide once in a week (for example on a weekend) and make sure to measure your size properly.

Measuring will be an opportunity for you not to forget your motivation toward diet, and you will be motivated more to see your effort as data.

Instead of upsetting everyday, thinking “I will do better next week even if this week is not good” can keep you motivated longer with a sense of self-composure.

 

-Buy low calorie foods


You can’t avoid eating if you have foods in your house. You want to eat snacks if you have them, and same for ice creams. Hurdles for eating is lowered.

To overcome this, buy a lot of low calorie foods and eat them when you want to. You can save your calories to one third or half of usual calorie intake.

Also you can diet while eating, instead of hard diet, so you can continue without feeling depressed.

 

-Rest once a week


It is difficult to continue diet with same pace and motivation. Make effort when you should, and rest well. It is a secret to continue.

For example, decide a day to rest, and you can eat snacks or drink alcohol. It will make your week more enjoyable.

It spoils everything if eat a lot on that day. Think it as just a reward for your effort.

 

-Prepare a big reward when you achieve your goal


Not just thinking to lose weight, but also prepare a big reward for you when you achieve your goal. For example, going to a trip or anything you don’t usually do. You will be motivated by just thinking about it.

Enjoyable diet feels better and easier than distressed diet, and you can achieve more. Please think of some reward you can enjoy.

 

-Always wear skirt


As you gain weight, you are likely to wear easy and loose clothes around waist. You can smile with easy clothes than tight ones, but you can’t recognize your gain in sizes coming from over eating.

If you are so, you can’t think realistically with weight and numbers even if you are on a diet. Have some courage to wear skirt, and be aware of how much you gained weight with your eyes and of people around them.

And you will feel happy to notice that waist is getting loose every time you wear skirt. It leads to another motivation. Dressing in pants decreases your femininity, so please change to skirts.

 

-Look into a mirror once a day


It is difficult to see yourself in a mirror. Even from a distance is stressful, but you can’t tell how you look without a mirror, and you will eventually don’t care about how you look.

Also, you will gain size without knowing how much you gained. Look into a mirror and see yourself at least once a day.

Not only from a good angle, try seeing from all directions to keep diet motivation.

 

What did you think?

Diet is really challenging. After conflict with yourself and trying many methods, many people will lose motivation and eventually give up. However, those who could get over with it and continue will make a success.

The point is how you maintain your motivation. Because your feeling is important, think about ways you can recall your motivation in the beginning sometimes. I hope this article can help you.
